A proper men’s dress watch is a must-have for men of a certain age, especially those concerned about their image. Respect and respectability are important to men and a quality timepiece is a simple way to generate both simultaneously. Owning a Cartier or Omega watch says a lot about a man. He doesn’t have to say a word. Men who own these types of watches are assumed to have a certain measure of class and to have achieved a great deal of success in their chosen field.
Men’s dress watches, at least quality ones, aren’t only for the man wearing them. They can be passed on from generation to generation. This sort of legacy is guaranteed to be a treasured one. Receiving the watch that ones father or grandfather wore is a gift that won’t go unappreciated or unvalued. Quality men’s dress watches can become treasured heirlooms.
Selecting the perfect men’s dress watch for oneself isn’t difficult once a person knows what considerations they should make. The first thing men need to consider is their personal taste. What features does he find most attractive in a watch and why. For those that have no clue taking some time and viewing a few different styles can be helpful. Next, consideration needs to be regarding what brands a man likes. Affordability, durability and functionality are also important and should be considered.
Aside from personal style and the aforementioned (affordability, durability and functionality), there are some overarching guidelines that men should adhere to when shopping for a watch. These are the most important criteria for men’s dress watches. Men should always go with a recognized brand, especially those that are image-conscious. Classic models are best for those interested in longevity and who want to get the most wear out of their watches. Classics can be worn for years and still look great. Quality will obviously be important. A watch that has been crafted well will last for a long time and will stand up to natural wear and tear. Those men looking to pass their watches down to the sons (or to the next generation) will want to be sure that they purchase high quality watches so that they’ll last and will be of value.
The appearance of the watch will also be important. A handsome and impressive looking watch generates a certain amount of respect from other men, not to mention envy. Women tend to look favorably on a man with a nice watch as well. Lastly, reliability is important. It doesn’t matter how great a watch looks if it doesn’t work properly.
